On June 29th, CTBUH hosted an all-day event which included a site visit to One Thousand Museum, an ultra-luxury high-rise development designed in collaboration by Pritzker Prize-winning architect Zaha Hadid and DeSimone Consulting Engineers.
The event included a series of presentations led by Associate Principal Luis Ramirez, Senior Associate Danilo Nanni, and other design and consultant firms involved with the project. Mr. Nanni and Mr. Ramirez discussed the function and form of the exoskeletal columns used to increase the stiffness of the building, the behavior of the building when subjected to wind forces, and how DeSimone utilized modeling software to optimize the structural design of One Thousand Museum.
